About us

The Seattle SeaChordsmen normally rehearse Tuesday nights, 7pm - 10pm, in our rehearsal room on the basement level of Queen Anne Baptist Church, 2011 1st Ave. N. Seattle, WA 98109. Guest are always welcome!  Due to Covid-19 we require proof of vaccination. Masks are required when King County community transmission exceeds 200 new cases / 100,000 or more than 10 new hospitalizations / 100,000 in the past seven days.  Email [email protected] to get started.

The Seattle SeaChordsmen chapter of the Barbershop Harmony Society (formerly the Society for the Preservation and Encouragement of Barbershop Singing in America) was chartered on April 14, 1949, and incorporated on October 2, 1953. Since then, the Seattle SeaChordsmen have been bringing the joy of barbershop harmony to music lovers in the area.

Seachordsmen get their greatest enjoyment from public performances.  Until the Covid-19 pandemic the singing Valentine program was our way of delivering love-ly messages throughout the area.  The chorus has been a regular performer at the Folklife Festival for years, and during the Christmas season the chorus has participated in the Figgy Pudding songfest in downtown Seattle every year since the first one. The Seachordsmen have appeared at Sonics and Mariners games, made appearances at the Vashon Island Strawberry Festival, and, in addition to presenting two wonderful shows each year, provide entertainment for various social and business gatherings throughout the Seattle area.

We are a gender-inclusive chorus that sings TTBB barbershop repertoire. We welcome all singers to our chorus, regardless of singing ability -- there are no auditions. If you can sing, we will help you improve; if you are new to singing, we will support you in understanding and best using your voice. And we would love to have you be a part of our rehearsals. Come join us on any Tuesday evening!
